clinton and jimmy carter will be here. that's obviously expected. another person who won't be here, mitt romney. that's not a slight, but it's kind of weird, because normally a challenger to a president is serving in some sort of official role in washington. they have a reason to be at the inauguration. mitt romney does not. so he won't be here. >> oh. come back and co anchor with me. >> all right. >> i like hanging with you. >> i like the recruitment. >> don't you guys love brianna? see? >> they don't know.

of service. chelsea clinton will be the honorary chair for that. and because january 20th, the inauguration day falls on a sunday this year, the official swearing in of president obama will take place in a private ceremony at the white house as it has to on a sunday. monday is the big day, folks. this all kicks off with a church service at st. john's church, just across the street from the white house. then on to the public. the swearing in here where hundreds of thousands are expected to turn out on what will be, i'm sure, a chilly washington day, from capitol hill to the national mall, pennsylvania avenue, for the inaugural parade. i will be there. i'm so excited. i'll be there in the thick of things. of course, many, many -- many, many of our cnn crews will be there as well. you can catch it here on cnn through monday. much like the halftime show at the super bowl, the opportunity to perform at a presidential inauguration really is the chance of a lifetime. and come monday, you have beyonce, kelly clarkson, james taylor, all performing in front of the president. no pressure. so will the

. hillary clinton was there in october and talked about a potential situation with mali which we all know has become very volatile and you have the french who have gone in there which reportedly is why this operation, this kidnapping operation was taking place. the kidnappers said they were doing that in solidarity for their people in mali. they were angry, they said, that algeria was allowing french planes to overfly algeria and go into mali to carry out that operation. now, whether that's true, i mean, it could be, or it could also have been, as some u.s. officials are indicating, kind of a preplanned operation. after all, we understand that these people came in from libya into algeria. and the group, by the way, as we also know, is led by a man who's notorious for kidnapping, he's made millions of dollars, kidnapping, et cetera. >> the news that barbara brought to us just before i came to you, jill dougherty, a u.s. drone, an unmanned drone has flown over this bp air field collecting intelligence information and the fate of the hostages as we await news on that. keep us posted as well.

not mean we can't do it. i was around for the battle during the clinton years. i was not a member of congress. i was a victim sitting in the audience as many of the others were there. but with the vice president and certainly president obama with their strength of the office and going around the country and talking to americans which basically agree with the president, it's going to be up to the people across the country to talk to their members of congress to make sure that we and get this done. this can save lives. we've saw that. when the large magazine clips, which i've been reintroducing ever since 204, when that ban was in place, we did not see these magazines out on the streets. and they were very expensive because they were rare. we can do that again to cut that down. we're not going to be taking away anyone's right to own a gun. the supreme court already did that. but with the president laying out what he did, in a very holistic way, by the way, by working with our schools, making sure we have community policing, have psychologists. it's going to be up to the schools to m
department under presidents, both george w. bush and bill clinton. why do you make these assertions coming back from iran? did you have high-level meetings in which you were privy to information our state department is not privy to? >> well, we met with a range of people. we met with people from the government but students at the university. we were actually invited by the university of tehran. we met with students, professors. we met with a range of people in iran, and what we come back with is a sense that walking in the streets of tehran, going to the university, going into the marketplace, this is not a country that is on the brink of implosion, that sanctions are somehow going to cripple and force it to concede to american or any other demands. and this is something that when we did the research for our book, we found historically, we have seen american so-called iran experts predict literally since the founding of the republic of iran back in 1979, that this political order is on the brink of implosion or regime change. this is something coming back from our most recent trip to iran.
